*** '86 The Mayo ***

When all your good intentions
just leave you feeling old
And your latest inventions
have all left you feeling cold
Well, it's then the Gipsy says:
come on over man, have no fear

She says, Daddy died last year
And I wish he were here

So, all your grand ambitions
they're doing what they're told
Down at the bottom of the river
where the old white fingers go
They say the women dug this river,
they filled it with their tears

And Daddy died last year
Well, I wish he were here

So if you want to see me,
I'm at the bottom of the stair
It's the place where no one looks for me
it's the place where no one dares
And if you think the times have been changing
Well, it's anywhere but here

See, Daddy died last year
And I wish he were here

So the Congressmen and the concubines
are all happy in their cage
And the women who surround them
They're all cute and under-age
And say: at least we'll be remembered,
screaming "Revolution is near!"

And daddy died last year
Well, I wish he were here

So the lawyers, they come bleeding me
with papa's old harpoon
They hold it in a glove
made of his barren woman's womb
She says she wants my bones
to decorate his tomb

See, Daddy died last year
And I wish he were here

Oh, Daddy died last year
And I wish he were here

Daddy died last year
And I wish he were here
